The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is eager to let area pheasant hunters know what’s in store for them this season. Pheasant season opens September 27 and many are interested in understanding which northwest areas have the best potential for a successful hunt. On Wednesday, September 17, the WDFW will be holding a pheasant hunting meeting at their main office at 2108 Grand Blvd in Vancouver to answer questions about hunting safety, recommended hunting gear and the season’s expectations.
Have a son or daughter interested in game bird hunting? September 20-21, 2008 has been designated as youth-only game bird hunting days in the state of Washington. Hunters under 16 can get a jump on the season during this time and learn hunting basics if needed. These opportunities are always great ways for families to pass on hunting traditions to the next generation.
